This past month in Philadelphia, this video got around which shows a cop, full in his suit and badge, bullying and threatening a young student who did nothing except walk home from school. The cop is now under investigation, thanks to this video.
The police officer in the video, for no reason, starts screaming at the student who is walking home, asking him if he “has a problem” and why he keeps “trying to make eye contact.” Last time we checked, looking at an officer was not a crime. The teen says something in response which is not hearable in the video, to which the cop harshly replies, “Well keep f*****g walking!” and then some more profanity and sentences which were clearly threats.
We are glad that officer is now under investigation. The person who posted this video has tried to be contacted to know what happened but the person wishes to stay out of the scene. However, regardless of why the cop was mad, he had no reason to act like he did. It is just as well he is investigated, not everyone deserves to have a badge or the authority to “protect and serve” with such a personality.
